It tends to sound a bit cringe-worthy whenever the words “What’s your sign?” are uttered. But when it comes to fashion, there’s a different perspective that you may not yet know. Your obsession with certain fashion styles may actually be out of your control - your zodiac sign can provide some answers as to why you dress the way you do. These twelve street style stars perfectly represent the twelve astrological signs and can be a source of inspiration for you to upgrade your wardrobe.
If your style is creative and cool, you may be an Aries. Your go-to pieces for your outfits are low-key, and you don’t need to wear the loudest or shortest dress. Jenna Lyons, creative director and president of J. Crew, has a unique ability to turn simple pieces into something totally awesome. The main thing to mastering the Aries look is to spruce up classic pieces with fresh colors and to get comfortable pairing new clothes with pieces you already have.
If you’re not all about looking the best and strive instead to be the most comfortable, you may be a Taurus, especially if you enjoy wearing cozy jeans and throw on some cool sneakers. Julia Sarr-Jamois is the editor for i-D magazine, and she loves to go for bold colors with a lot of texture that are still totally comfortable. A Taurus is not about being overly sexy but instead opts for eye-catching items that can be easily mixed and matched, like patterned tops, neon sweaters, and wild sneakers.
Geminis don’t like to get caught up with wearing just one style. They are confident and can dress down in jeans, while at the same time wearing tall heels. They love accessories and can switch it up depending on mood. Shiona Turini is a marketing director at Cosmopolitan who knows her style and is comfortable with cool heels and a toned-down look. It doesn’t matter if you’re feeling feminine or a bit edgy with a biker jacket or super cool booties - make sure you have cute bags and shoes on-hand for a successful ensemble.

Your style is functional and lady-like and you love beautiful pieces that have a touch of sexiness without being over-the-top. Nicole Warne has a playful style. She’s a blogger who looks confident no matter what she wears. Nicole has a hint of femininity, but she’s not categorized as being “girly.” To get this look, opt for feminine pieces that have flirty matching sets like vintage pieces mixed with classic styles.

Scorpios are polished, focused, and streamlined. They have a look and stick to it. It doesn’t mean you’re boring, though, as you always find a way to add a bit of edginess. Much like Carine Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris. She has a style all her own - she is refined but edgy and likes lots of leather and the color black. To get this look, stick to your uniform, whatever that may be, and play with textures and materials, but steer clear of overly feminine pieces.

Capricorns are simple but sophisticated and love to get dressed up, but if it’s a struggle to wear, then they won’t. They tend to gravitate towards classic pieces with a twist. Olivia Palermo is best known for her creative and classic combinations. She loves to try out new things but is true to her aesthetic. Her look comes off as totally effortless and to get it, invest in classic pieces like button-downs, boots, and skinny jeans. Also, try color blocking from head to toe.
An Aquarius is innovative, fun, and colorful, and never dresses for other people. They wear what makes them feel happy, and while many might shy away from bold colors or wild prints, you’re fearless. Natalie Joos is a blogger and casting agent who is always wearing whimsical outfits that work for her, but maybe not for everyone else. To get this look, combine shapes, patterns, and colors you would otherwise think you couldn’t. Avoid pieces you feel are trendy and instead go with ones you truly love.
